To make the most of dotNotify’s reminder bot features, keep these tips and tricks in mind:

Schedule recurring reminders in different channels: Setting up reminders saves you a ton of time, and they go to work for you once set up.

However, in some cases, one trick to optimize the performance of your reminder messages is to set up a couple of variations in different channels. This makes sure you get more chances for your community to see them.

Use the WYSIWYG editor for announcements: dotNotify’s built-in WYSIWYG Discord-ready editor makes creating visually appealing and engaging reminders easy.

Experiment with formatting options to make your messages stand out.

Customize reminder settings: Tailor your reminders by adjusting the reminder’s frequency, time zone, and target channel to ensure your messages reach the right audience at the right time.
